EXTRA CARE HOUSING
A flagship housing scheme is now under construction that will allow more people to live independently, whilst getting the care and support they need.
Due to open in 2017, the £80m scheme comprises 316 apartments at three different locations within the city – Hall Road, Leads Road and Hawthorn Avenue.
The new homes will enable older people, working age people with disabilities or mental health, to live independently in a modern, secure and vibrant environment.
RON DEARING UNIVERSITY TECHNICAL COLLEGE (UTC)
The Ron Dearing University Technical College (UTC) will be a new college located in the centre of Hull. A new building is being constructed with the main aim of providing world class engineering skills to young people. The UTC will initially take on 150 students aged between 14 and 19 with the aim of getting to full capacity of 600 within five years and will open in September 2017.
The Ron Dearing UTC Trust brings together a unique group of local employers together with Hull University, market leading technology providers, innovative engineers and global corporations are also involved, to achieve the shared goal of making Hull a centre of technological and engineering excellence and providing opportunities for young people in terms of education and employment.
The state of the art new college is being built on the site between Kingston Square and Worship Street in Hull city centre, alongside the Hull New Theatre. The brand new building will have classrooms and research areas, workshops, a design studio and an arena where large scale machinery, drones, robots and remote controlled vehicles can be tested.
Funded entirely by the Education Funding Agency (EFA), the college will provide students with an employer-driven technical and vocational education. In addition to the core curriculum, the college will specialise in digital technology and mechatronics – a combination of mechanical engineering, computing and electronics – to equip students with practical knowledge and qualifications relevant to their expected career path, as well as a real appreciation for the demands and expectations of the world of work.
